Synopsis A man witnesses the drastic changes in society as he goes back to the Alexandria of his youth
Alexandria, the cosmopolitan city on the northern shore of Egypt,was once home to a multi-cultural society. Egyptians, Greeks, Italians, Christians, Muslims and Jews, were all living there in harmony. But now, a new form of Islamic driven capitalism is transforming the city into a mono-culture that ignores this past and rich complexity. Yehia is a witness to these changes as the death of his mother takes him back to the famed city where he recollects the memories of his childhood. Rich encounters with old and new friends introduce him to the new face of the city and confront him with a Muslim fundamentalist tenant who tries to kick this open-minded clique out of his newly owned building.
